The worst accident I ever had was the one that caused my seizures.
I was at an ice rink, speed skating, when some jerk put his foot out. (A real funny joke.)
Into the boards I went, flying over the ice.
Only to land up laid out in the lap of the skating coach for who knows how long later.
After that came the falling that became my trademark.
I fell upstairs, downstairs, on the pavement (resulting in some lovely concussions), but my parents refused to recognize them as seizures.
I was just clumsy. And not diagnosed until two years later. (Tonic-Clonic and absence seizures.) And then treated like a leper.
It was a long journey to become who I am today.
